iPhone 5s 16GB What is this missing component? Is it vital?

This is the component in question. I'm getting an error 27 when I attempt to restore, i'm not sure whether this is why - or where I can buy a replacement ?

Thankyou so much in advance ! I've been racking my brain over this for hours

Hi downoretail,

That missing component is your antenna interconnect cable. It is most definitely vital. It's used to connect the your phone's antenna to the logic board. Without it you won't be able to get a cellular signal.

You can buy a replacement here:

Hope this helps!
